Merry Christmas from Downunder

Christmas is on its way! and I'd just like to say... I hope you have a hoppy time, with colourful friends and friendly family. May you laugh like a kookaburra, sing like a lyrebird,  chatter like a dolphin. and be as cute as a platypus. I hope your tables are full of tasty treats and yummy foods that remind you of home. May your days be filled with beauty, big smiles, relaxing times, and much happiness. Wishing you lots of sunshine from downunder  and a very, very, merry, merry Christmas!!

A little thank you giveaway!

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my last post. It means a lot that you take the time to comment and I really do treasure your lovely words.  As I've mentioned 2017 is shaping up to be an action packed year for me. I've got some other teaching dates to look forward to, In March I'll be heading up north to Coffs Harbour to do Whizz Bang! workshops at Nesting Needles.   The shop looks gorgeous, full of fabulous fabrics and Lisa stocks lots of ric rac and trims. I'm so looking forward to spending time with Lisa and the Coffs Harbour quilters. If you're interested in joining in the fun give the shop a call. Check out the Nesting Needles website here . Here's a bit of Christmas fun to share with you.  Many years ago, well 11 years ago I made this Christmas stocking for my friend LeoniePeony. It's when we were florists so of course I had to go with a flowery theme.  I love seeing it on this fabulous Christmas hexagon q

More Exciting News!

More Exciting News!

Yes, you read the heading correctly. Can you believe I have more exciting news!?!? This has really been the most amazing year with one wonderful thing after another. Well...  I guess you could say this latest bit of exciting news is really about next year. Because in 2017 I'll be teaching classes at Material Obsession!!  The class is called Whizz Bang and Beyond,  inspired by my Best in Show quilt Whizz Bang! I'll share my techniques for making different types of folded point blocks. No doubt there'll be fun with all my favourite things - yoyos, ricrac, trims, buttons and all things colourful.   I've been busy sewing blocks as teaching samples and have lots of ideas for different ways of using the blocks. You know what I'm like when I start thinking of ideas,  my imagination can lead to all sorts of colourful places. If you join the class we can go on the adventure together.   Read more about all the great classes offered by Material Obse

Snap shots from the show weekend

Firstly I have thank all the people who left such wonderful comments on my last post. Your words of congratulations mean a lot to me.  As promised  here's the long version of my adventures at Modern Quilt Show Australia . It's a bit more like a diary of my days rather than a quilt show post. It feels as though there are lots of quilt photos from the show on the internet already. I guess this post might be more about how the days flowed? Anyway lets just jump in and see how it goes... On Friday morning as the sun was rising I travelled down from the mountains to the bustling city. A train and a bus ride later I arrived bright and early at the very grand Glebe Town Hall. It wasn't long until members of the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild , the wonderful team organising the show turned up.  The reward for being early was being able to see the empty hall with it's ornate details. Those columns could be applique panels. Such a great space - big and airy
